Royal Scottish National Orchestra. Hers is a much more volatile approach. Unfortunately, in some of the tuttis the acoustic of the Kennedy Center in Washington makes for unpleasantly dried-out yet misty orchestral sound.

It makes one wonder why so apt and attractive a linking has not become common—maybe a question of virtuoso violinists not wanting to risk the idea of being taken as a subsidiary attraction. The concerto may be placed after the ballet, a much longer work, but with Shumsky’s jjarvi, clear tone, recorded with greater warmth and sweetness than on many of his earlier recordings, and with the solo instrument placed rather close, his strong, positive view of the work comes over powerfully.
